Book Description :

Sleep problems are one of the most common complaints for adults in primary care. They are associated with a decline in overall health status and perception of poor health and can have negative personal and social consequences. The term insomnia is variously defined and can describe a symptom and/or a disorder. It involves dissatisfaction with sleep quantity or quality and is associated with one or more of the following subjective complaint(s): difficulty with sleep initiation, difficulty maintaining sleep, or early morning waking with inability to return to sleep. Individuals with sleep problems also report higher levels of anxiety, physical pain and discomfort, and cognitive deficiencies. Insomnia may be associated with long-term health consequences, including increased morbidity, respiratory disease, rheumatic disease, cardiovascular disease, cerebrovascular conditions, and diabetes. While insomnia is typically transient, some cases are persistent and can last for years. 'Insomnia disorder' should be diagnosed using diagnostic criteria from the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) and/or the International Classification of Sleep Disorders (ICSD). Both have been recently updated. The fifth edition of the DSM (DSM-5) is geared towards primary care and general mental health providers. Criteria for insomnia disorder require that sleep symptoms cause clinically significant distress or impairment(s) in functioning (social, occupational, educational, academic, behavioral, or other) and occur despite adequate opportunity for sleep on at least 3 nights per week for at least 3 months. Diagnosis also requires that symptoms not be primarily linked to other sleep disorders or occur exclusively during the course of another sleep-wake disorder (narcolepsy, breathing-related sleep disorder, circadian rhythm disorder); not be attributable to the physiological effects of a substance; and not be explained by coexisting mental disorders or medical conditions. Dysfunction associated with insomnia disorder includes fatigue, poor cognitive function, mood disturbance, and distress or interference with personal functioning. Both criteria recognize sleep-related complaint(s) despite adequate opportunity for sleep combined with distress or dysfunction created by the sleep difficulty in their current and previous versions. Until recently, diagnostic criteria classified insomnia as primary or comorbid, depending on the absence or presence of other conditions. However, the DSM-5 now uses the term "insomnia disorder" and ICSD-III uses the term "insomnia;" both eliminate the distinction between primary and secondary insomnia. The distinction had questionable relevance in clinical practice, and revisions reflect this understanding by suggesting a diagnosis of insomnia disorder for patients who meet diagnostic criteria, despite any coexisting conditions, unless the other condition explains the sleep problems.Depending on how insomnia is defined, prevalence estimates range from nearly 33 percent in an international sample of primary care patients to 17 percent of U.S. adults reporting "regularly having insomnia or trouble sleeping in the past 12 months" to 6-10 percent of adults meeting established diagnostic criteria. Insomnia disorder in the general population consists of difficulties getting to sleep and maintaining sleep. Females are 1.4 times more likely than males to suffer from insomnia. Older adults also have higher prevalence of insomnia; aging is often accompanied by changes in sleep patterns (disrupted sleep, frequent waking, early waking) that can lead to insomnia. Older adults typically report difficulty maintaining sleep. Many insomnia cases coexist with other conditions (especially psychiatric diagnoses and pain disorders) however, current diagnostic criteria suggest that insomnia disorder includes sleep problems that cannot be explained by another mental or medical condition.

Book Description :

Insomnia symptoms are the most common medical complaints, affecting up to a third of the general population. Insomnia symptoms include sleep problems (initiating or maintaining sleep) as well their repercussions on wake-time functioning. Insomnia disorder can be diagnosed when insomnia symptoms are recurrent (>3 times a week), persistent (> 3 months), cannot be attributed to sleep-disrupting circumstances, and impair daytime functioning. Insomnia disorder affects approximately 10% of the population and tends to persist over months or years. Insomnia disorder severely reduces the quality of life and carries an increased risk of severe, long-lasting health problems, including cardiovascular and mood disorders. Given its high prevalence, persistence and impact on health, it is highly important to study the pathophysiology of insomnia disorder during wakefulness and sleep. Overall, the study of the endogenous EEG dynamics in insomnia disorder revealed that hyperarousal of the central nervous system occurs not only during sleep but also during wakefulness. During wakefulness, insomnia disorder is characterized by stronger cortical oscillations in a broad beta band and by increased cortical sensitivity to cardiac activity. Furthermore, people with more severe insomnia complaints show stronger long-range temporal correlations of the amplitude fluctuations of cortical oscillations; which is consistent with a weaker inhibitory bias in the cortical balance between excitation and inhibition. During sleep, the shallow and more fragmented sleep that characterizes insomnia disorder may particularly involve N2 instability. Resolving the causal relationship between sleep fragmentation and excitation/inhibition balance is the next key-step in the understanding of the pathophysiology of insomnia disorder.

Book Description :

If ever a book could be called timely, this is it. Sleep disorders medicine has made rapid advances in recent years. The field has attained growing respectability, with a textbook recently published, a congressionally man dated National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research, and a growing public awareness of the importance of sleep disorders. However, this rapid growth has made the discrepancy among certain components of the field all the more obvious. Thus, we find that patients who complain of insom nia are almost never in the majority of those seen in sleep disorders centers, in spite of the well-known fact that the prevalence of such individ uals in our society is by far the largest. Current articles on insomnia abound, but they tend to be facile recitations of diagnosis and impractical global recommendations for treat ment, without providing the essential details. Indeed, the clinical profes sions really do not know what to do about insomnia. This is reflected in a number of observations I have made in the recent past. For example, the majority of individuals who complain of insomnia take alcohol, aspirin, over-the-counter medications, hot baths, and a host of other nostrums, but rarely seek a physician. In the unlikely event that a physician is consulted, he is likely to prescribe a sleep medication but without any particular consistency, or any clear instructions on its use.

Book Description :

It is estimated that one in ten U.S. adults suffers from chronic insomnia. If left untreated, chronic insomnia reduces quality of life and increases risk for psychiatric and medical disease, especially depression and anxiety. The Overcoming Insomnia treatment program uses evidence-based cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) methods to correct poor sleep habits. CBT has been proven in multiple studies to improve sleep by reducing time spent in bed before sleep onset, reducing time spent awake after first sleep onset, and increasing the quality and efficiency of sleep. This second edition has been thoroughly updated by the program developers, Jack D. Edinger and Colleen E. Carney. Patients use the Workbook in conjunction with the treatment they receive from their therapist. Patients will receive information about healthy sleep and the reasons for improving sleep habits, and the therapist will develop a program to address that patient's specific sleep problems. Use of a sleep diary, assessment forms, and other homework (all provided in the Workbook) allows patient and therapist to work together to develop an effective sleep regimen tailored specifically for each patient.

Objective. Examination and treatment of insomnia in those with multiple sclerosis (MS) is crucial, as insomnia may contribute to decreased quality of life and disease progression through increased inflammatory responses; however, few studies have adequately assessed for insomnia among individuals with MS. Similarly, few studies have examined the correlates of insomnia or implemented behavioral treatments for insomnia. This study aimed to characterize the nature of insomnia, to explore the symptom profiles of those with insomnia, and to conduct a pilot trial of Brief Behavioral Treatment for Insomnia (BBTI) among those with insomnia disorder and relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. Procedures. 31 participants attended an initial in-person session where they completed the Duke Structured Interview for Sleep Disorders and several self-report measures to characterize sleep, health, and mood. Subsequently, participants completed two weeks of sleep diaries. Four participants diagnosed with insomnia disorder during the initial session completed a trial of BBTI. Results. Findings indicated that 54.8% of the study sample met criteria for insomnia disorder. Insomnia severity was related to pain and physical health-related quality of life. Insomnia severity was also related to fatigue; however, when sleep aid use was controlled for, the association between insomnia and fatigue was no longer significant. Lastly, three individuals had clinically significant improvements in insomnia and decreased fatigue after BBTI. Discussion: Insomnia is prevalent among those with RRMS and is related to factors of MS that are known to be debilitating. BBTI may serve as an effective treatment to improve both insomnia and fatigue; however, larger studies to demonstrate efficacy are necessary.

Book Description :

Sleep is an important phenomenon in everyone’s life. We spend one-third of our life sleeping. Lack of sleep may result in several sleeping disorders which can affect the mental, emotional and physical well-being. In this research, a disease known as Insomnia will be discussed. Normally, dreaming is an activity which is taking place in mind while the body is at rest. Insomnia, or sleeplessness, is a sleep disorder of being unable to fall asleep or to stay asleep as long as desired. A person suffering from Insomnia wakes up early or frequently during the night and feels exhausted, slow and is unable to concentrate. The various stages of sleep and the systems affecting the human body will be discussed in detail. The various symptoms, their causes and the respective treatment are also part of this study. Moreover, a time-frequency analysis of EEG signals is necessary. The electrical and chemical activities of the brain change in the presence of sleep disorder. These changes affect the waveform of the EEG signal and help to detect those disorders. In this work, the use of a short time-frequency analysis applied on Electroencephalogram (EEG) Signals is made for diagnosing Insomnia. A comparison between the normalized powers of the two types of patients, i.e. normal patient and Insomnia patient, is drawn to achieve meaningful results.

All Sleep Disorders involve daytime stress and trouble with work, school or daily activities because of sleep problems during the night. People with a sleep disorder often have depression, anxiety, trouble thinking, remembering or learning information that needs to be treated along with the particular sleep problem.Ongoing sleep issues like insomnia (trouble falling asleep) or excessive (too much) sleeping can lead to other mental health problems, so getting help is important if you suffer from these conditions.It is not uncommon for people suffering from insomnia to experience increased levels of anxiety about their inability to fall asleep. This becomes a self-perpetuating cycle because increased anxiety leads to increased arousal, and higher levels of arousal make the prospect of falling asleep even more unlikely. Chronic insomnia is almost always associated with feeling overtired and may be associated with symptoms of depression.In this book you will learn how to get a better sleep using CBD and how to get rid of Insomnia.

Book Description :

The statistics show that as much as twenty percent of the population suffers from chronic insomnia—and one-fourth of those with the condition eventually develop an anxiety disorder. As comorbid conditions, they contribute to any number of physical and social problems. Yet too often insomnia is undiagnosed, or treated as merely a symptom of the patient’s anxiety. Insomnia and Anxiety is the first clinician guidebook that considers the evaluation and management of insomnia and related sleep disturbances that occur conjointly with the common anxiety disorders. By exploring the ways that one condition may exacerbate the other, its authors present robust evidence of the limitations of viewing insomnia as secondary to GAD, agoraphobia, PTSD, and others in the anxiety spectrum. The book reviews cognitive and emotional factors common to anxiety and sleep disorders, and models a cognitive-behavioral approach to therapy in which improved sleep is a foundation for improved symptom management. Beginning and veteran practitioners alike will find vital insights into all areas of these challenging cases, including: Diagnostic and assessment guidelines. Cognitive-behavior therapy for insomnia. Behavioral strategies for managing insomnia in the context of anxiety. Cognitive strategies for managing comorbid anxiety and insomnia. Sleep-related cognitive processes. Pharmacological treatment considerations. Insomnia and Anxiety is highly useful to clinical psychologists given the range of treatment strategies it describes and to researchers because of its emphasis on the theoretical and empirical bases for its interventions. In addition, its accessible style makes it an excellent training tool for students of therapy and psychopathology.

Book Description :

It has been 5 years since publication of the first edition of Dr. Attarian’s Clinical Handbook of Insomnia which at the time was the first significant cl- ical textbook dedicated to insomnia, an often overlooked but important me- cal problem. The book was very well received. There has now been sufficient new information on the subject to warrant a second expanded edition of this very useful volume. Then, as now, the approach is to emphasize the frequent biological causes of insomnia rather than to attribute it primarily to underlying psychological and emotional factors. This new edition is an impressive major effort, having been expanded from 14 to 23 chapters including an extensive revision and updating of previous chapters with new references and the ad- tion of many new authors. An entirely new section of the book deals with insomnia in special populations including teenagers, pregnancy, menopause, and the geriatric population. Other new topics include insomnia as enco- tered in primary care practice, the role of circadian rhythms, the contribution of sleep related movement disorders to insomnia, insomnia in pain disorders, and the interesting entity of paradoxical insomnia, in which there is a large d- crepancy between the objective and subjective estimation of quantity of sleep. This collection within a single volume of practical information concerning a common but often neglected disorder remains a very useful addition to the armamentarium of the general or specialty physician who wishes to properly address insomnia in an informed and responsible manner.

Book Description :

For every woman who “does it all” . . . except get a good night’s sleep! More than 60 percent of American women have trouble sleeping— which isn’t surprising, as they have a higher risk of developing sleeping problems. But addressing this issue is more nuanced for women than for men; pregnancy and menopause are just two factors that add complexity to an already difficult problem. At the risk of jeopardizing work, parenting, relationships, or overall health, no woman can afford to deal with sleep deprivation on her own. The Women’s Guide to Overcoming Insomnia is a roadmap for those who experience anything from occasional bad nights to chronic insomnia. It outlines several methods to overcome these issues and improve physical and emotional well- being. From medical sleep aids to nonmedical approaches, the book looks beyond the basics of sleep hygiene, helping women to retrain their bodies and minds for a good night’s sleep every night.
